At least I finally wised up and brought my self levelling camp cot. So the 4 hours of sleep I did get were good."

That's the thing about camping on-site at music festivals--the older I get the more I want my creature-comforts (comfortable bed, hot showers, a quiet place to sleep, etc.).

I def. intend to go next year, but man, I need more than 3-4 hours a night, especially when my waking hours primarily revolve around drinking, dancing, etc.!

Mando: are there any quiet(er) areas within the festival grounds where one can camp so that (with the help of self-leveling cots, earplugs, and doctor-prescribed pharmaceuticals) one might be able to sleep in till 10AM or so?? Or is there some kind of off-site camping area within walking distance to the festival grounds?
